Here We Go Again- Demi Lovato

Before I start blogging on this album, I would like to mention that this is the first CD I've blogged about that I haven't heard any songs about previously. The music sounds much different than her past songs; I think it's because co-writers include Nick Jonas and John Mayer, whose songs are much different than her own. One thing I find very interesting is that the album was released in Mexico before it was in the US. 

If you haven't heard of Demi Lovato, you may recognize her from some of her credits: Barney and Friends, Prision Break, Just Jordan, As the Bell Rings, Camp Rock and Sonny With A Chance. Her big break was starring in Camp Rock, which also starred the Jonas Brothers. She recently won some Teen Choice Awards; Breakout Star Female, Music Tour, Tv Show, and was nominated for 2 other awards.
I got this album because so many of my friends had only great things to say. However, by the 4th song, I was disappointed. So far, it seemed that this song was like every other Disney cds; mediocre singing, poorly written songs, you know the drill.
The first song of the album is Here We Go Again. It's one of those Disney songs we hear oh s
so often on the radio, about love and break-ups. On a scale of 1-10, I'd have to give it a 3. You can 
tell that, like the Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato is trying to add edgier songs to her album. The song
sounds terribly desperate. 
The next song, Solo, starts playing. At first, I can't even tell that a new album is playing, because 
that's how repetitive this album is. I would tell you what this song is about but after listening to it 2 times
and googling the lyrics, I still have no idea what it's about. This sound was probably written by her
7 year old half sister.
By the 3rd song, I'm wondering why I even bought this album. I'm also wondering if the instruments
play the same song every track. You've Got Nothin' On Me reminds me of my Mary Kate and Ashley 
CD I have that's collecting dust on my bookshelf. 
Your Falling Over Me Starts. At first it starts slightly different than the first 3 songs, but by the 
chorus, the song sounds like every other song on the CD, with way to many backup singers. Honestly,
I think sand has more diversity. 
The 5th sound is the most decent song on the CD so far. I think I may have seen the music video
one on Disney Channel. Apart from the lyrics that seem to be a continuation from songs 1-4, it's the
least annoying song so far. I think my migraine from the first songs is clearing up. But at the same
time, I'm wondering who in their right mind would write a song about how a room is too quiet?
Catch Me starts playing. I start applauding Demi Lovato for having 2 decent songs in a row.
It reminds me off one of my all time favorite songs; Chasing Cars. Lovato may have more potential
then William Hung.
The song Everytime You Lie comes on, and I immediately miss the previous two songs. Michael
Buble is probably going to sue for ruining adult contemporary songs that I love so much. Enough
Got Dynamite will be the death of me. Lovato trys to sing rock. I try to think happy thoughts;
sleep, chocolate, facebook, DEMI LOVATO SINGING THIS SONG?!. What is Disney thinking?
I can't be happy enough when the song ends.
I have high expectations for the next song, Stop the World, because Joe Jonas co wrote it.
My expectations come crashing down. Either this type of song is on every single Disney album,
or I'm having an extreme case of deja vu.
John Mayer co-wrote the next song, World of Chances, which would explain why it's one of my
favorites. I might actually rate it a 7 out of 10. I think I would like it a lot better if someone
else sang it, who had a better than average voice.
Remember December is next. Why am I listening to the CD? There must be hundreds of
songs that sound exactly like this. I don't know if I can make it through the song; much less the album.
Everything Your Not. I think this song might be on the album 5 other times. I try to pay attention
to the song, but I can't out of joy that it's the last song on the album. Clearly, I did not enjoy this
album. I would not recommend buying it. If you r e a l l y want to, I recommend listening to the
songs on YouTube, before wasting money on this album.
